Yogi Berra’s wife, Carmen Berra died in her mid-80s from a stroke. She was a vivacious, fashionable and stylish lady who had been by Yogi’s side since the past 65 years or so.

Carmen Berra had been a loyal and affectionate wife for more than half a century. Yogi Berra, her husband, was known in his times for his skills in baseball and the witty and funny quips he made. His favorite one-liners had an aura of the boxer Muhammad Ali to them. 

“It’s déjà vu all over again” and “It ain’t over till it’s over” showed his freaky if slightly absurdist sense of humor. And Carmen absolutely adored him for his personal idiosyncrasies. She married him and the two recently celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary. 

“She died peacefully — she went the way she would have wanted to,” Larry Berra told the Daily News on Friday. “We’re grateful that she and Dad were able to spend some good time together (Thursday). I’m not just saying this because she was my mom, but she was one of the great women of all time.”

After her death from a stroke, Yogi is left bereft of a wonderful and wise wife and all our condolences go out to him. Carmen will be dearly missed since she had so many qualities and was an active and lively personality. The two had three sons and today they have 11 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. 

They say behind every successful man is an even more successful woman. In the case of Yogi Berra this was clear as the light of day. He sought inspiration from his wife whom he loved more than life. 

Yogi Berra had been getting on in years by now and the death of his wife hit him hard. May he find solace and repose in his strong faith in God and the support of family and friends. Yogi and his wife met in the 40s in St. Louis. They had an affair and later on tied the knot.

“On behalf of the entire New York Yankees organization, we offer our deepest condolences to the Berra family,” Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said in a statement. “Having known Yogi and Carmen for so long, it is almost impossible to imagine two people who complemented each other better than they did. We will always remember Carmen’s smile and sense of humor, and her kindness and generosity will be deeply missed by all who knew her.”

 

It has been a journey alright with the two sticking up for each other through the years. Carmen was also responsible for laying the foundation of the Yogi Berra Museum. She was especially known for her beautiful spirit. A friendly and caring soul, Carmen won a lot of moral support. May she rest in peace!
